All these 2 and 3 star CFB players walking away from full scholarships on a gamble somebody else wants them?

Im guessing its the last week fillins when teams miss on their targets. They need a warm body CB or WR so they just take whatever 3 star is available.

Wow, those are some high value prospects there! *sarcasm*

People here keep saying that "we need to use the portal, we need to use the portal."

The problem is that the portal is full of rejects and players that were 2, 3 or more positions down in the depth chart, often in schools with less talent than Clemson. There may be a hidden gem in there somewhere, but most of them aren't worth a starting slot on our team and they want to start, which is why they are in the portal to begin with.

Other than OL (that takes time to develop), or DB (has to fit CBV scheme), I don't see many that Clemson would aggressively recruit.

Keep in mind, these are the guys that will judge their next stop by immediate playing time. That's never anything that Dabo will promise. Although, there's plenty of evidence where, if you work hard, you'll see the field.

We are returning the entire starting 5 from last at the end of the season.

McFadden, Rayburn, Trotter, Putnam, Parks



We are going to have solid depth behind them

Tate, Williams, Howard, Pennington, Mayes



And we are going to have a bunch of young talent after that

Leigh, Sadler, Linthicum, Tucker, Miller


Really can't image the coaches bringing an OL from the portal.

The Clemson Football Portal Talent Evauator. All the prestige in the title, no job pressure or expectations.

It’s almost as good as getting let go with a buyout.

Hopefully all these "portal pumpers" realize that once you look at the list, the options are slim. The only way Alabama and other Power 5 schools get the top players, is they never stop recruiting them even after they sign somewhere else.

You want the truth, read this article.

Eli Ricks (losing Booth and Goodrich)
Terrence Lewis (losing Skalski, Spector, Jake, and Kane)
Marcus Bradley (need depth at DL since recruiting isn't helping)

100% agree on Ricks. Could be the next great one here.

Don’t agree on LB as we have a cast of studs (Simpson, Bentley, Trotter… to go along with some solid Seth guys).

DL is hard to gauge but no doubt we need depth. Maybe just beg KJ and XT to use their Covid year.

I would add the WR Haselwood from OK. Local kids from GA and could be good for our WR depth.

Agree on Ricks.. I would go after him but I haven’t heard we r even in the conversation. I don’t see a lockdown CB on the roster. Jones and Davis have looked ok. Maybe Wiggins really develops.

I’d say we need DE, especially if KJ doesn’t come back. There’s a kid from Florida that just hit portal that looks solid.

Slot receiver would be another option. If Drew Swinney or Herbstreit are starting at end of the year I think my head will literally explode!

be a point of need for our team, the only offensive lineman listed in this portal story's Top 10 is a FORMER Clemson Tiger who is LEAVING us?

Just another anomaly in what has got to go down in history as one of the strangest college football years on record.
